Sumter, South Carolina(WLTX)- A Sumter County deputy was fired after being arrested and charged with discharging a firearm into a dwelling. 

The Sumter County Sheriff's Department said Crystal Driggers, 35, her husband, James Allen Driggers, Richard Charles Perry, and Todd Allen Haviland were drinking when they decided to start shooting a barrel outside a clubhouse in Sumter County Thursday night.

The clubhouse is located on Thomas Sumter Highway. The incident report said all the suspects decided to discharge one full magazine of ammo from their handguns.

One of the bullets hit a home where it nearly hit a man inside. According to the incident report, the victim stated that while she and her family were in their residence, they heard nine or more gun shots fired from the woodline area behind their home.

The victim said one of the shots went in the living room wall and lodged in the front living room, barely missing her husband.

All four were arrested and charged with discharging a firearm into a dwelling.

Officials said Driggers was suspended that night and terminated the next day.

Driggers had been a deputy for more than a year.
